Covid-19: Chris Bishop on vaccination rollout

From Morning Report, 7:25 am on 8 July 2021

The Covid-19 vaccine rollout for Canterbury is under close scrutiny after the District Health Board admitted it won't be getting started on Group four until mid-September.

Covid-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins has told the District Health Board to stick to the government's timeframe but that doesn't look likely to happen.

Hipkins and Director-General of Health Ashley Bloomfield declined to appear on Morning Report.

National Party Covid-19 Response spokesperson Chris Bishop was happy to talk though.

He spoke to Corin Dann.
